That’s Great Backyard Bird Count, by the way.
Today, my mom and I did a little walking around Moab (we walked a little over 3 miles, actually) and counted birds for the Backyard Bird Count. It was nice to get outside (it was in the 60s today), and fun to do something with my mom. Here’s the only good photo of the day – a cute Black-Capped Chickadee.
Afterward, we went to Moab Diner for lunch. Yum! Our count list is below.
30 House Sparrows
25 American Crows
12 Common Ravens
6 Dark-Eyed Juncos
4 Eurasian Collared-Doves
4 Black-Capped Chickadees
4 White-Crowned Sparrows
3 House Finches
3 Lesser Goldfinches
2 American Goldfinches
2 Northern Flickers
1 Black-Billed Magpie
1 Cooper’s Hawk
Yesterday, I went for my first bike ride OFF road in a long, long time. It was a beautiful day (up to 71°F), and the ride was short, easy, and fun. It was the North 40 trail just north of Moab. Rich went with me, and was VERY patient with me. I need that right now…I also feel like I need training wheels, and maybe a LOT more riding.
I am definitely interested in getting out and riding more this year. I may need to be riding by myself for a while first, though, because I am not the mountain biking giant I once was. I need to get back to some better level of fitness.
My plants are still a little on the winter-sleepy side, but they are starting to wake up. Some of the outdoor cacti are perking up, and I have one indoor cactus blooming.
Thanks for reading, and commenting!
